This is a 2023 Niner Air 9 3 Star hardtail build in the awesome Silver/Baja Blue colorway. Built from the frame up with tons of new parts that feature massive upgrades from the factory build. Increased the fork travel to 130mm and added a sweet PNW dropper and remote. The Race Face Aeffect R components and Sram GX/NX Eagle 12 speed drivetrain improve the in-house component spec that came stock on this capable hardtail. Included are several red accent details that really bring the bike together and add to the already great looks. The build is as follows:

The bike has been unridden since built and all NEW components are in perfect condition. The frame, brakes, and dropper/remote are all very lightly ridden and in excellent condition with brakes having new housing and fresh fluid/service. The 130mm fork upgrade and the 150mm dropper addition really open up the downhill capability while maintaining the Air 9's excellent uphill efficiency. Overall a great build and a great hardtail for someone looking to conquer the trails.
